A farm with integrity

This is a very special place. You get a true farm experience on a family farm. Gail and his wife are excellent hosts; both are welcoming and wonderful people.
The campsite where I stayed was close to the entrance to the farm, but at the end of the day, the site became private, and I found myself cooking out under a dark, starry, Kansas sky.
You hear the farm around you as it changes throughout the evening, night, and morning. The familiar sounds of the cows, sheep, and chickens give way after dark to the howls of coyotes in the distance and Gail's two protective sheep dogs warding them off. Then, of course, the rooster's crows in the morning twilight to tell you the day is beginning again.
The farm itself is quite large, with ponds and hiking trails. The vegetation is diverse.
Campers have convenient access to water, toilets, and a shower.
Gail is one of today's thinking farmers, whose inventiveness and understanding of the ecology of farming has allowed him to join a small but growing group of regenerative farmers who work with the rhythms of nature to produce food.
You witness an entire philosophy at work on this farm--compassion toward people, animals, and the soil make this place unique.
